Action Alert: GOP Trying to Bring Back Earmarks

Late last night three GOP members of the House of Representatives intend to bring back earmarks via a secret ballot vote, Wed, Nov 16, as part of a rules conference. We need an avalanche of calls and tweets into the offices of these three Representatives, as well as our own. The secret ballot makes it much easier for Reps to go along, with zero accountability.
Those members are Reps Mike Rogers (R-AL), John Culberson (R-TX), and Tom Rooney (R-FL).
Please call their offices today, and tweet to them. Tell them American voters, under no circumstances, will accept a return to a Congressional tool historically abused, turning DC into a favor factory.
Rep Mike Rogers (R-AL): (202) 225-3261 @RepMikeRogersAL
Rep John Culberson (R-TX): (202) 225-2571 @JohnCulberson
Rep Tom Rooney (R-FL): (202) 225-5792 @TomRooney
